Many people cringe when they hear the word exercise. It’s pretty common to associate exercise with hard work and strenuous activity. However, you do not have to overdo it in order to enjoy exercise. There are lots of low-key ways to get fit.

Walking is an excellent form of exercise, and you can work it into your daily routine. Do you take the elevator in your work building? Try using the stairs instead. After work, take a walk with your dog or your children. You’re getting in shape simply by living your daily life! You can even go swimming, biking, hiking or taking a walk around the neighborhood.

You can also find ways to make exercise fun. Do you have a TV show you are binge watching on Netflix? Commit to doing 10 jumping jacks, 10 crunches, and 10 push ups between episodes. You can also do this during commercial breaks when watching TV. These spurts of exercise really add up!
